Painting my 3rd Ultramarine – Third Times A Charm?

Time for my third (and last) Ultramarine a la Smurf! This time, I am going back to working on the drybrush technique, with the added challenge of my first time painting a face!

I was overwhelmed with feedback on my last painting video and got a lot of great tips that I will use moving forward. However, this video was filmed back to back with the other one, so you will see a lot of the same mistakes I made last time in this one. But don’t let that stop you from letting me know what you see wrong, and what I can do differently to paint these better. Thanks for all the feedback, I promise you will see me use it in the next painting video!

Speaking of, make sure to watch until the end to see just what I plan on painting next!

What I learned painting my 2nd Warhammer 40K miniature

Previously in my Warhammer 40K series, I finished painting my very first Ultramarine. Since then, I got my hands on a three-pack of Intercessors and decided to experiment a bit with how I paint them.

Things went awry with this, my second ever mini-figure. Mistakes were made. Many of them. But, in the end, I managed to hide a lot of them/ cover them up. Did I succeed in making a decent looking mini, or is this just a glittering 28mm turd? Watch the video and let me know what you think of my painting!

Custom WWF Hasbro Championship belts from Wrestling Figure Workshop – Review

We love our vintage WWF Hasbro figures, but we were robbed of having championship belts for these toys during our youth. Today, that all changes!

Thanks to the UK-based Wrestling Figure Workshop, we now have classic style WWF Heavyweight, Intercontinental and Tag Team titles for our 90s era figures (which also fit Mattel’s WWE Retro line too)! Take a look at the video to see what they are like, and if they are worth picking up for your wrestling toy collection.
